You did not see the lunar eclipse yesterday? No problem!

Watch a lunar eclipse at 4 o'clock in the morning? We can understand that not everyone manages to be awake. Luckily, Instagram has the best pictures.

The lunar eclipse that was seen this morning from 4:11 to 5:24 was something very special: the moon was especially close to Earth last night, as close as it has been for over 30 years, which is why it is very large was.

In addition, the moon was - as typical for a total lunar eclipse - blood red to see. This is because, due to the refraction of light in the earth's atmosphere, some rays of light reach the moon despite the total darkness. Especially the red parts of the refracted light reach the surface of the satellite.

A natural spectacle that you do not get to see every day. However, at a truly unchristian time: who is awake at 4 am on a Monday morning and fit enough to enjoy the sight of the moon?

No problem, we have collected for you the most beautiful pictures of the moon from Instagram:

Extra stood up at 4 o'clock, and then it was cloudy at half-time :-(

I also ventured outside on this special night. Photo was taken a few hours ago on the market square of Halle (Saale). Was very fun. And I've been using my tripod all the time, which otherwise only dusted in the corner.
